ROSES AND RASPBERRIES: Raspberries to idle truck driver

Raspberries to the operator of the idling Chevrolet diesel pickup, FE 1882.

Raspberries to the operator of the idling Chevrolet diesel pickup, FE 1882.  You were in front of 59 First Avenue South on Friday, March 10 after 2:30 p.m.  Your truck was idling for at least 15 minutes with no one in it!

The weather is sunny and not cold.

I just had the “privilege” of sucking your diesel exhaust from the four inch tailpipe while shovelling snow to make the sidewalk safer for you and others to walk on. And I’m trying to recover from a cold. Please think about what you are doing.  Don’t idle! Disconnect your remote start if you don’t have control of it.

The care our dad received during the hectic last few months has been exceptional.

We appreciate all you did to make his life as easy as possible.

For that we are truly grateful.
